    So after I take out the screws and remove the side panes of the trailer how would you recommend I line them up for wrapping?

    I can only imaging your faces right now and im sure some of you are picking yourselves up off of the floor. LOL. Just kidding. Grin. Thanks again for the quick and lifesaving information the members of this forum provides on a daily basis.

    ALSO don't forget to add a dab of clear silicone to the #2 screw threads when replacing them .I own a 32ft trailer and have found that if you don't do this they will back them selves out after a few long road trips.
